A visit to the dark side (sponsor presentation)

Wednesday 4 October 17:00 - 17:30, Red room

Tony Anscombe (ESET)

ESET's Global Security Evangelist will explore just how difficult it is to acquire a customized malware strain that could be used to target businesses or consumers to gain money or personal data. Are there really companies that will support and obfuscate malware on demand, and what does it cost? And what if you only want to purchase the data from a breach? Join us on this journey to the dark side - we promise to bring you back!
